Resilient Construction During Hurricane Laura

In June 2020, two Quanta operating companies completed the construction of 5.6 miles of new 230 kV transmission line stretching from Nelson to Manena, Louisiana. The project was designed to withstand 140 mile-per-hour winds.

The new line made it through an unprecedented storm season in 2020 with no damages, including Hurricane Laura, which was the strongest storm to make landfall in 164 years in Louisiana.
